Let’s see how I do in a haze that’s not being broken by coffee.
@Micro just…so much yes.
@Lizzy You’re so real and honest, when I read your posts I feel like I’m sitting by you in a coffee shop. I also love reading about your mindfulness efforts, and telling the demons that they aren’t real.
@Systemofconfusion your posts are thoughtful, patient, inquisitive, and insightful.
@Lisaw1973 you’re a bright ray of sunshine to those of us who need it, even when we didn’t know that we did.
@Paladin @Ashwell @echo I know you’re hurting, but you don’t let that stop you from whole-heartedly supporting others who need it in turn.
@grandmastrqueen You’ve grown SO MUCH in the last year, and even in your crazy life you can still help people through their chaos.
@Jezliee there’s something really comforting about having a fellow Texan here
@DementedDoll It’s been a treat to follow your treatment and healing journey in real time! It shows what dedication to treatment looks like, and it allows us to watch you grow!
@Wings I appreciate your thoughtful, methodical, intellectual approach to your support. As an intellectual/analytical/spectral type person, your responses really resonate with me.
@Hoffman @connerm1219 You’re not afraid to be real about your struggles, when a lot of people–guys in particular–would probably keep them quiet to appear “strong.” Your struggles are ones that a lot of us struggle with but don’t want to open up about, and you’re leaders for sharing. You’re also learning so much about yourselves through your struggles, and are living proof that struggles can make us better.
@Metalskater1990 I know things seem hopeless, but there’s always a part of your post that shows you don’t want to give up. You know there’s more to life than what you’re experiencing, and you’re willing to fight for it, or at least stick around to see what it is.
@Sapphire you tell it like it is, and you provide a great example for setting personal boundaries and taking care of your own well-being first.
@nyntje No matter how much you’re hurting, you take the time to remind people they’re loved, and that’s just something we all need to hear more often.
@ranma1983 You’re an inspiration for standing up for your convictions and dedicating yourself to affecting change for a group of people that society is actively trying to ignore.
@Xavier1 I don’t think you’ve met a stranger online. You engage with everyone, and that acknowledgment is so encouraging for people who feel unheard.
@FaeTheProud you’re one of the bravest people I don’t know sticking up for your sense of self when everyone is trying to tell you to be someone else.
@itsnotoveryet you’ve taken some of the strongest steps to improve your situation, trading toxic stability for uncertainty with the potential to flourish.
@Sledge for your unique ability to support and truly understand veterans, when most of us haven’t been where you and they have been.
@NateTriesAgain for making this community possible, and always working to make it even better!
All the rest of you for being you. For sharing your stories, for showing us all that we’re not alone, and for having the courage to admit to a bunch of strangers that things aren’t okay. For reminding community members that they’re not alone in their struggles, or reminding them how far they’ve come.
